After the prices in North America were raised in the last year, Europe is now on the way. The membership in Sony’s online service PlayStation Plus (PS Plus), which offers among other things online multiplayer and game benefits, costs from the end of August just under 60 euros a year and thus 10 euros more than before.
Sony has informed subscribers of PS Plus about the price changes, which also affects the memberships with a shorter term. The annual subscription will increase from 49.99 to 59.99 euros as of 31 August 2017. The quarterly subscription becomes five euros more expensive and costs from then 24.99 euro. One month PS Plus will be in the future for 7.99 instead of 6.99 euros to have. As a percentage, the 3-month subscription is the most expensive with 25 percent. There is no reason for the sometimes clear price increase.

As of 31 August 2017, 00:01 (BST), the prices for the PlayStation Plus membership change. Since you have an existing membership, this means that all subscription fees due on or after 31 August 2017 will be debited at the new price. You have the option to buy a PlayStation Plus subscription at the current price until August 31, 2017, which will be added (or “attached”) to your current membership.
If you do not wish the subscription to be extended to the new tariff, you can deactivate the option “automatic renewal” no later than 48 hours before the next debit in the customer account. Further information on the termination of the membership is provided by the support pages.
Price increase in North America as early as 2016
Just under a year ago Sony had raised the annual subscription fee in North America to $ 59.99 (USD) and $ 69.99 (CAD). The three-month subscription was priced at $ 24.99 USD / $ 29.99, while $ 11.99 has been raised in Canada since $ 11.99, while in the US the fee remained unchanged at $ 9.99.
